Scrap Yard FAQs
What Happens to My Car?
Once you have accepted a quote for your vehicle the buyer will contact you to arrange the collection of your vehicle. What happens once your vehicle is collected will depend on the reason why the vehicle was bought. The vehicle may have been purchased to be dismantled and scrapped at an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF), or it may have been bought for salvageable parts; in which case parts of your car will be taken apart and fixed, or used to return another vehicle to the road. This guide explains more about what happens to your scrap vehicle.
How Can I Get My Insurance Reimbursed?
If your vehicle has been declared off the road and a Statutory Off Road Notification has been issued, or once your vehicle has been collected, you can cancel your insurance and if you pay your insurance annually you may be eligible for a reimbursement. In order to find out if you are eligible you will need to contact your insurer directly, ensuring you have your policy number to hand when doing so.
How Can I Get My Tax Reimbursed?
If your vehicle has been declared off the road and a Statutory Off Road Notification has been issued, or once your vehicle has been collected, you can cancel your tax and if you pay your tax annually you may be eligible for a reimbursement. Find out more in our useful guide on reclaiming tax and insurance.
Can I Keep My Personalised Plates?
If you have personalised plates on your vehicle you can absolutely still keep them, however you will need to transfer the vehicle registration number over to another vehicle or onto a Retention Document, before the vehicle is taken to an ATF to be scrapped. If this is not done and the vehicle is destroyed then the vehicle registration number will be destroyed and you will be unable to use it on another vehicle. To transfer or retain ownership of the vehicle’s registration number you will need to apply at your closest local DVLA office.
My Vehicle Has Fuel Left in it, What Should I do?
Our buyers have to assume that any fuel left in a vehicle may be contaminated and so all fuel will be removed during the depollution process, but this will not affect the purchase price given. We advise against removing fuel yourself due to the health and safety risks of handling flammable liquids.
What do I Need on The Day of Collection?
On the day of collection, if you have them, you will need to provide the following:
- All sets of keys
- Photo ID – driving license or passport
- Provide your v5c (also known as a logbook)
- Any service or MOT history
When Will I Get Paid?
All payments are put through once the vehicle has been collected, so you’ll get paid the very same day. If you have any more queries on the scrapping process, read our most frequently asked questions or get in touch with us.
